Hi all –
Here is a quick update just to report that things are not going great. Call it an upswing in tics. Call it State Testing. Call it the Intuiv or the placebo or just simply a new detergent that is setting his TS butt on fire, the itches triggering a ripple effect of bad behavior that has me scratching my head and drinking more Two Buck Chuck than I’d care to admit.
Bottom line: Things suck around here.
But I’m not in despair.
I’m trusting the process and not bowing out of this UCLA study. I’m looking at it like clarity. For those of you struggling with this, please know you aren’t alone. I am rooting for you all and this too shall pass.
In love and exhaustion – Andrea
PS: Note to yourselves: It is indeed possible to have your child hit the button on a friend’s garage remote control so many times that it burns out the motor and causes said friend’s father to be locked out of the house. This can all indeed happen within a 30 minute period when you are naively picking up gluten free bread from Trader Joes. Because, you know, going gluten free just might be the ticket to all your trials and tribulations. Ahem………………….
